Abenaki Circle of Courage Youth Share Culture at Castleton

The 3rd Annual Young Adult Voice Movement Conference was held at the Castleton State College on June 1st and 2nd 2012

This was an over-night event

The Vermont Youth in Transition Grant focuses on young adult involvement in an extremely authentic way. This years event has been completely designed by an amazing group young leaders from around the state.

Friday June 1st, registration opened at 4:00 p.m. and was packed full of fun. There was a live DJ, free dinner, Minute to win it games, dancing, live performances and so many more activities.

This was a lot of fun for everyone. Pictures of the young adults enjoying the company of their peers with the DJ music playing.
